Grab a cupcake and celebrate: WHEN GIRLS BECAME LIONS turns 1 year old this month!
And what a year it’s been! Val and Jo are grateful for all the amazing feedback, media attention and reader responses, like this one: “I couldn’t put the book down. It reminded me of so many sacrifices so that my daughters could have the opportunity to play. Thank you to all the unsung heroes!” Thank you indeed!
Whenever we have an opportunity to thank those role models who have gone before us, let’s seize the moment. That’s why Val and Jo were thrilled to be guest bloggers on best-selling author Elisa Morgan’s REALLY blog, to write about the story behind WHEN GIRLS BECAME LIONS and to say thank you to those pioneers before us.
Check it out HERE!

A new rave from Les Norman, former Jr. Olympic Gold Medalist, MLB outfielder, TV analyst & syndicated sports radio host (who recently interviewed Val & Jo on his show, “Breakin’ the Norm”):
“As an AVID sports fan and voracious reader, I search for compelling stories that will both move my heart and have the potential to change the world. I found those very things in WHEN GIRLS BECAME LIONS! I laughed, cried, grew angry at injustice, and cheered with joy. This is not only a book about the champion spirit that lies within female athletes, but the athlete in general . . .
